Ed Harvey is supervisory hydrologist and chief of the U.S National Park Service (NPS) Water Resources Division (WRD) in Fort Collins, Colorado. He received his B.S. in geology/geophysics from Olivet Nazarene University (1986), his M.S. in hydrogeochemistry from Purdue University (1990, and his Ph.D from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (1996). Immediately after graduation, Ed took a joint position at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) where he was a research hydrogeologist with the Conservation and Survey Division (the state’s geologic and water survey) and a professor of hydrologic sciences with the School of Natural Resources (SNR). At UNL, Ed’s research focused on groundwater dependent ecosystems, groundwater-surface water interaction, and using geochemical and isotope applications methods to characterize regional groundwater flow systems.
